Lakers should ask for Royce White instead of Scola in Houston Trade
Here are a couple of scenarios that I think would make the Lakers a better team while shedding some money:
Pau Gasol to Houston for
Kevin Martin (expirer),
and Royce White
White is a stud, reminds me of an Odom/Diaw combination. His averages were 13.4pts,9.3rbs,5.0asts on 53.4% FGs at Iowa State. He's got an NBA ready build and mindset. Plus he's almost a good of a passer as Gasol and won't need a lot of shots to contribute (averaged less than 10 fga at Iowa State).
Future 1st round pick, Blake, Eyenga to Minnesota for Beasley (S&T). Pick up Hill's 3.4 mill team option, sign Sessions to 4 mill per for 2 seasons, and Barnes for veteran's minimum.
What do you guys think?
